Sure is, today I'll pick up tune up items since the plugs have a bit of burnt oil on them and my alternator went bad+battery because of the time sitting.

Oh and to all of you who are needing motors etc. - I know an importer who is trying to nearly give away several ST-185 clips so if you need engines badly and wouldn't mind a whole clip instead - hit me up.


PM sent for a friend


Finally got the price - $1500 without haggling all with body parts and dashboards - sounds good to me. If someone needs a tranny or everything but the engine I'm down to split one. Otherwise they'll put it on the truck for you with a nice Toyota forklift :smokes:
If anyone is actually serious about buying one I'll hook you up with the guy so you can do your own haggling/business etc.

Ew yeah TX weather with no AC. Unless my alltrac is in tip top shape to show off I probably take it down there, i'll just stop by with a car equipped with working AC.

i'm definitely a wussie i like A/C in the summer - tired of being without it in both R2 & Vadar.
i worked jobs back in the day in houses with no A/C & it was say 105 outside & you could barely touch the walls b/c they were so hot.
so i'm used to heat to a point, like working outside doesn't bother me too much but this past summer in the cars it sucked badly & it really got to me so A/C recharge & repairs are a top priority in both cars this winter.

The problem is the showing up with a sweaty back, red face, just cooking in the heat. I chose to leave my AC deleted for the time being...but it is brutal.

March or April would be the best times for Texas weather next year unless you can wait until Late October-November.

Did any of you guys see this:

They're cruising some SICK roads just south of Austin-possibly the best in TX. Let me know if any of you are coming down, I think I may try to head over.

March would probably be the best time but then you run into people still finishing up there winter projects.

yeah and a lot of the younger guys are in college so they have school then & can't make it so everyone just compromises & deals with the heat in the summer.

i saw that MR-S (since majority of the cars are Spyders) cruise/meet.
i know those roads well & where they are wanting to drive is less than an hour from san antonio, so pretty far south for us.
joe can't get off work to go down there friday & we're not driving half the night just to get there at 7am or whenever they are wanting to start the cruise.
